1 In Liz Travels: Route 66

Mural Madness on Route 66

There is plenty of kitsch on 66 as we’ve mentioned. And if you were a collector of old hotel signs you’d have a field day out here. But what we’ve been collecting along the Route are murals.

It seems that almost all the towns we’ve passed through have decided to arrest a traveler’s attention with wall murals on the sides of buildings. Some are copies of old advertisements, others are displays of work by local artists, and yet others are community projects. We have dozens of images, and I’m not going to give them all to you now–Tucumcari mayor Ruth Ann Litchfield told us her town has 100 all on it’s own! Once I’m home, I’ll try to set up a page for those of you who want to dive into the mural scene but for now, only a few to whet your appetite.
